I read your recent post “This May Be Better Than God”, and I’m on board with you. For years I’ve been contemplating I AM.
Here’s how I do it. I break it up into two syllables, I and Am. Sometimes, to be honest, I never get past the I. When I say I, there’s a sense of boundlessness, bigness, infinity. As they say, “center without a circumference.”
As I share this story with you, I want you to get that I know I’m not confined to the form of my body. This is what happened:
One morning I woke up with one side of my body in pain. Allen, I’m talking from head to toe. I couldn’t put any pressure on my left foot. I limped into the kitchen, but double backed to the bed. “This won’t do.” It was really strange that just one side of my body could be in so much pain.
This went on all day long. But, Allen, I had an important engagement coming up in a few days. I had to be up to snuff.
That night I contemplated the words I AM and lingered on the I. Then I realized that I cannot be immobilized. Since I is not confined to this body form, I’s mobility cannot possibly be confined to this body form. It could not be impaired. Allen, I realized that if I’s mobility could be impaired, then the movement of the planets, waters, and winds would be impaired. After all, I is all.
I asked myself (got this from God is All), “Have the planets stopped moving?” I said no. Then my movements cannot be stopped. I realized that I am mobility. The next morning I got up and with just a mild pain went about my business free to Be.
All the while, Allen, I kept my thoughts on I Am not confined to my body. I Am boundless, free and infinite. I am not bound by my body. I can move. I Am movement.
Allen, I know I don’t have to tell you that by afternoon, I was going up and down the stairs, around the house and through the hardware store with perfect ease. Thanks for your blog.
